muesli 2I don’t care for breakfast cereal in any way, shape or form, probably a hangover from childhood when “tasteless but good for you” products were new to the market . Occasionally in winter I cook some oatmeal porridge at breakfast time and I’ll enjoy it servedwith mashed banana, a dollop of natural yoghurt and a drizzle of maple syrup. My chief taster on the other hand enjoys muesli 365 days of the year, even chooses muesli if we decide to eat breakfast in a cafe. I look at commercial muesli from time to time when I shop and balk at the sugars, fats and preservatives in some packs, the minimal variety of ingredients in others, but what really motivates me to make Mal’s Feelgood Muesli was the price difference between a quality commercial cereal mix and that which I could make at home. To make this recipe will take 10 mins from the time you start to the end of clean up. It makes enough muesli for 2 people to have ½ cup measure each for breakfast for 2-3 weeks. Delicious, nutritious, and yummy if served with fresh fruit and yoghurt.


1 x 700g bag multigrain porridge mix or oats
1 cup puffed amaranth
3 cups puffed millet
3 cups puffed rice
1/4 cup linseeds
1/2 cup oat bran
1 cup sunflower seed
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sultanas
1 cup whole raw almonds, roughly chopped

In a large bowl, mix everything together. Store in an airtight container.

    I also enjoy a good Muesli but have a hard time finding something great in the shops. Must try this out, it looks wonderful!

      Muesli is very flexible. Use the grains you like then add the fruit, nuts and seeds. In the past I’ve added apricots, cranberries, dates, hazelnuts, walnuts. Just mess around with it until you come up with a formula that you love.

    For the first time I’m lost. Multi grain porridge, puffed millet, amaranth? Where do you get these exotic ingredients. And what is amaranth when it’s at home?

      Coles has all these ingredients in the health food cereals section. Multigrain porridge is a mix of rolled oats, rye, spelt and barley. Amaranth and millet are both simple, gluten free, high protein grains that have been cultivated for millennia. They are nutritious and when puffed, easily digested. You could also use puffed spelt and rice or rolled quinoia in the mix and omit the grains I’ve listed.
